Big Announcement!

Standard

I am SUPER excited to announce that….

  
 
I am PREGNANT with baby number 3!!!!

   We dressed in our New York Rangers gear!  To make the announcement that our tie breaker is due in July! 

  
  
I wish that I had a video recording when we told our kids. Our oldest is so excited to be a big brother again! 

We showed him the sonogram and asked him if he knew what it was? He said”a moon?!” Well kind of but it has a head, a belly,  and arms…”Me, that’s me!” No, we told him there was a baby in my belly! 

His face lit up and he dove and hugged my husband, then me and then hugged his little sister! He then kissed my belly and said “don’t worry baby, you are safe in there and I love you!” My mommy heart exploded with love! My daughter was just pointing at my belly saying “baby, baby, baby”. 

It was an amazing moment!!!! 

Till next time!

Ich lerne Deutsch zu sprechen. (I am learning to speak German)

Standard

So I decided to add one more thing to my plate! Actually, I have been wanting to do this for a very loooooooong time. When I was accepted to my high school, in 1998, I had to pick a foreign language, German was one of them. However, my parents talked me out of it since it’s not that popular and since I wanted to be a teacher, my dad said “Spanish may be more helpful”. So i picked Spanish instead. I regretted it ever since.

Then in 2010, my husband and I went to Germany for our honeymoon. Listening to the native Germans speak was amazing!My husband and I would try to say a few things, but felt so uncomfortable saying them, we were so thankful that the Germans know English! I told my husband, I want to learn as soon as we get home, “I am going to buy Rosetta Stone.” He chuckled at me…but agreed. Well, I didn’t buy it when I got home and life kept trucking on. Still, it was in the back of my mind, that I would learn one day!

In September of 2015, we went back to Germany for our Second Honeymoon which was to celebrate our 5 years of marriage in the 6th year. The learning the German language came right back to the front burner of thought. unfortunately, between planning the trip, kids, life, and anything else, I didn’t have time to purchase or learn.

So, Christmas 2015 comes around. My hubby asks what i want, and I say “Rosetta Stone German.”

BOOM! Christmas came and what was under the tree for me? “Rosetta Stone German” Ahhhh! I was so happy!

I began the lessons on January 4, 2016. The recommended amount of time to devote yourself to the program is 3 times a week for at least 30 minutes. I have been doing 5 days a week 30-45. I am on Level 1 Lesson 4.

I am really enjoying it and gaining the confidence in me saying it. I look forward to doing it everyday during the kids nap time!

Well, I am actually on my way to begin today’s lesson!

Till Next time! 🙂

 

*I am no way affiliated with Rosetta Stone. My family purchased the program and I am loving it!

Happy 2016!!

Sorry I have been MIA for a while…I have been super busy! Between School, Holidays, and just fun family time, I haven’t had much time to actually sit in front of the computer to blog. I know you may be thinking “Well why not just use the WordPress app?” Well, I do, only for uploading pics (Since they are right on my phone). However typing on there is kind of annoying… Sometimes it is just really nice to sit at a computer and have time to type… I mean I did have to Pass typing class in High School with the annoying beeping software… I might as well use my skills…HAHA!

So far 2016 looks bright and many things are in store for my little family!

Hope the year is treating you alright so far! One of my Resolutions was to make sure You’ll be seeing more from me, I promise!

 

Till Next Time!
